She is the diva of Bollywood and he is the most handsome Nawab of the glamour world, and together they make for a royal couple. Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan are a lethal combination and one look at them makes our hearts flutter with happiness. When Kareena had started shooting for Tashan, she had never thought that she would find her soulmate after the end of the shooting. The duo has completed eight years of marital bliss and the charm in their relationship is just like the way it was during their dating days.
Do you know, when Kareena Kapoor was planning to settle down with Saif, many people warned her against it as she was at the peak of her career. But the actress didn’t care about it as she was madly-in-love. After falling head-over-heels in love with one another, Saif and Kareena had tied the knot on October 16, 2012. The duo had welcomed their baby boy, Taimur Ali Khan on December 20, 2016. The stunning couple, who is expecting their second child is celebrating their eighth wedding anniversary today.
In a throwback interview with the Vogue magazine in 2013, Kareena had recalled how she had threatened her parents for a hush-hush wedding, away from the media glares. She had recalled telling them if they would not let them do it their way, then she and Saif would run away to London and would get married there without anybody. Elaborating on why the couple had chosen a register marriage, she had stated, “Over the years of courtship and being together, we realized that there was no value left for anything. People just want to know what we’re eating, which designer I’m wearing, who we’ve invited. Saif and I decided that we wanted to keep the purest part of our relationship sacred. We followed protocol by going out on to the terrace and waving at the media after officially registering the marriage, but they didn’t need to know more than that.”
Earlier, in an interview with Humans of Bombay, Kareena had talked about how love had brewed between her and Saif. She had shared, "When I thought I was falling, Saif caught me. I’d met him before, but while we were filming Tashan, something changed. I wore my heart on my sleeve! He was so charming; I fell for him hook, line & sinker. I remember while shooting in Ladakh & Jaisalmer, we’d go on long bike rides for some alone time. We’d enjoy the beauty, have great conversations & just bond!"

Kareena had revealed that every time Saif had proposed her, she had said, ‘I don’t know’. She had further revealed that he had told her that they should get married, in Greece as well as in Ladakh and both the times, her answer was the same. She had stated it was not a ‘no’ but the fact that she doesn’t know him that well to say 'yes'. Kareena had further admitted that marrying Saif was the best decision of her life.
At the Hindustan Times Leadership Summit in 2019, Kareena had talked about how she had shut everyone’s mouth when they had told her that marriage will put an end to her career. Talking about the same, the gorgeous actress had revealed, “The decision to get married was...it is not a crime to be in love and if nobody wants to work with me because I am in love and I am married then don’t because I will do whatever I want. Everyone said your career is over and I said if it is so, be it. But this is what I want to do, this is the person I want to spend the rest of my life and I will do it. I think it the best decision I have made, as of now.”

She did some tremendous movies after her marriage, worked throughout her first pregnancy and is still doing the same with her second pregnancy, giving major goals to all the women out there.
